|This was me upon finishing my book on Saturday.|
|Just kidding. This was actually me.|
The last several weeks, those of you who are friends with me on Facebook or Twitter* may have noticed I’ve been talking a lot about revising and editing.
That’s because that’s been my world lately.
And you know what? I love it!
There’s something awesome about taking something that’s broken and fixing it. It’s a challenge to piece it together just so, but in the end, when you have a complete product, it’s so worth it.
It’s been a lifelong dream of mine to write a novel. Many dream it, few actually do it. It was awesome to reach that first milestone of writing “The End” late last year. (And yes, I actually wrote it. Oops.)
In the last year, I’ve also had my first writing rejections, my first beta reader critiques, and my first contest results feedback.
That was rough.
But totally worth it. Because now, here I am.
I FINALLY put the finishing touches on my novel. (Well, for now. You all know how it is.)
My husband and I celebrated with ice cream. Yep, ice cream is a must in my celebrations.
And now, I think I’ll celebrate this milestone with a weeklong blogging break. I’ll be back Monday, July 9. Have a happy Fourth of July, everyone!
Your Turn: What’s a major goal you’ve achieved in the past or want to achieve in the future? How do you celebrate a major goal achieved?
